Undecided

First off I appreciate everyone's input on my milsurp topic. I really think, for anyone who would actually care, that for my next milsurp I'm either going to go with a current production M1 or look for a Mark 4 or 5 .303. On to the new topic. Mossberg 500 or Remington 870. I really want a shotgun to go skeet shooting but at the same time I am prone to wanting to "sporterize" or "bubbafy" the gun. Opinions on the base and suggestions for accessories.

Skeet Shooting

If you're going to skeet shoot I would highly recommend the Remington 870 which can also be accessorized.

Why not

Why not buy an Auto for skeet? I mean there is nothing wrong with pumps but if u plan on shooting more than 1 target @ a time, then the pump will be slower.

Not really. A pump is harder when skeet shooting but it shows a higher level of expertise if you can master it.

True

True, but I had rather go with what works than what is harder. Look @ Tom Knapp who holds the world record for most clay pidgeons thrown by hand and shot in the air with a single shot for every individual target...he uses a Benelli auto because his shots are challenging and require fast shooting. Also, what about the Olympic Shooting team, what do they shoot, not an auto, but not a pump either, a Over-and-Under. The proof is in the pudding.

Occasionally when shooting Trap you have a miss-fire or a dud and having that extra shell helps the score. If you should happen to miss on the first shot you also have that second shot or third. Only an Automatic can afford you this luxury. I have never shot skeet but have downed many clays.
p.s. I don't think skeet are as good of eating either..lol

Having extra shells would help if you miss or one fails but if you are shooting skeet you only get one shot per clay. So if there is two clays in the air you only get two shots and that's usually only as many as they'll let you load (the number of clays that are being thrown).

Off Subject

This is kind of off subject, but where is Nutty Basterd's "Milsurp" forum? I couldnt find it but I am interested in looking @ it.

That's it

Thanks Reaper, just wanted to check out that forum. I am really interested in Milsurp rifles because of their history.
